Odette Gegenheimer was born in Sweden 1981. She left to study Spanish in her Spanish mother’s native city Barcelona, Spain. During her first year in Spain she studied art and literature at the university of philology Barcelona.
Her interest for art made her study textile design at Escola Massana Centre d’Art i Disseny in Barcelona. Creative wanderlust lead to an intersection of color and design theory with figure drawing and made her realize that nature, fashion and illustration was her true and consistent passion throughout her study.
During and after graduating 2010 Odette combined working as a fashion stylist and an illustrator for La Vanguardia Dossier.
Currently Odette lives and works in Barcelona as an artist.
